my mosaic village

 ok so at our cabin, on the riBer, that we love,
there is a table ...
t'was moved there 2 or so years ago 
when we packed up our first home to move onto a new adventure
at that stage it had sat .... a UFO .... for quite some time
in fact years .... i'm too embarrassed to say how many ...
managed to talk husband into the idea that the riBer would be its perfect home
it is a mosaic village
& by the time i finish it... it's rather lengthy story, will have been told
to the 'entire' village ..... 
yep, you may have heard recent whisperings 
by said husband, that he's still not sure 
where this table's final resting place should be??
he has both suggested & threatened the tip many times!!
so ...
i thought i should crack on with it! he he ...
after a mega materials clean up & sorting
the sun is now shining brightly with rays of gold on a blue blue blue sky day
the church stands strong on the hill beyond the olive grove
the large gum sits neatly over the ridge
the cobbled piazza is the centre square in town
i'm into symbols ... noticed much?
"well see" .... its our 'village'
in a village the meeting place is the piazza ...
and to me a table is a place to meet & share a meal & our heARTs
& the best bit is that a mosaic of course brings all 
those little pieces together to form one big picture

 ... there is still a LOT to do ...
but it is my work in progress
and its kind of been 'freshly pieced' once again

Beautiful mosaic. I've always wanted to do that, but haven't gotten to it yet. Well done.

Wow you were busy - this is looking great Wendy - or was all this there under the extra tiles so I didn't see how far along it was?? I love it, especially the windows of the church and the heart quilt block.
Would be distracting to eat at though!

It is gorgeous so far! I have always loved mosaics, but haven't done any with glass yet. I've made a few with fabric using the ticker tape method. It is a fun process of making something big and beautiful out of something tiny. :-)
